The ACT government is closing my childrens primary school – Cook Primary School – amongst 38 others on terribly dodgy terms. I’ve started “Backwards 2020”, a blog about the “Forwards 2020” proposal by the ACT government, a disaster not only for our local school but for government education in our state. Please spread the word.
I’m too angry to write well about this now, but you know, we came to Canberra and specifically moved to Cook based on the reputation of the education at this school. The proposals are not about quality of education, but about knee-jerk reactions to political budgets. What a way to ruin what so many has worked hard to achieve. More later.
